The Future of WordPress


A very eloquent review of where WordPress stands in today’s web and of what it can be made into. Includes ideas for where WordPress might go in the future, some criticisms, and input from notable community members. Well worth a read for anyone who wants to check the current view of WordPress. Some good discussion in the comments as well – whoever said comments were dead??

WordPress Glossary


The WPBeginner site has unveiled a new resource for WordPressers: a glossary. WordPress resources are abundant online, but there has not been a canonical glossary on the subject – the Codex is good for what it does, but it is not a glossary. WPBeginner have taken the initiative to create a centralized listing of WordPress-related terms, along with their definitions, and link to related content as appropriate (good SEO win for WPBeginners as well). It’s a good start, but there’s much more that can be added; the people behind the site are open to suggestions! They are also interested in volunteers to help with managing the glossary.

Multiple sites have attempted to be a hub for news and other content about WordPress – some are still around, and others are not. The people of ManageWP have made public their new efforts on this front.
